ArmInfo.An official investigation will be carried out in Armenia in connection with the problem of delivery of samples to the International Defense Conference & Exhibition in the capital of the United Arab Emirates - Abu Dhabi. RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this at a government meeting on February 25.
As the head of the government noted, the order to conduct an official investigation has already been given to them. And if it turns out that there are officials' faults, they will be held accountable. Earlier, the Ministry of High-Tech Industry (HTI) of Armenia made an explanation because of the scandal that broke out around the participation of the Armenian side in the International Defense Conference & Exhibition in the capital of the United Arab Emirates - Abu Dhabi from 21 to 25 February. The scandal erupted due to the fact that the pavilion of Armenia at the exhibition turned out to be empty and instead of samples of weapons of the Armenian military-industrial complex, only booklets were presented in the pavilions. As it turned out, due to the careless organization of the delivery of Armenian defense products to the exhibition, the cargo for unknown reasons was stuck in Moscow and was not delivered to Abu Dhabi on time. The ministry said in a statement that the absence of exhibits in the pavilion of Armenian companies was due to logistical problems. To clarify the circumstances of the incident, by order of the minister, an official investigation is carried out.
Note that the International Defense Conference & Exhibition, or IDEX 2021 for short, was held from February 21 to 25 in the capital of the UAE - Abu Dhabi. The exhibition is dedicated to technologies for ensuring public and state security.
